My mistake, I tried again with the 'lubuntu-18.04.5-desktop-amd64.iso' file, and it did work.

What happens if you do a 'sudo modprobe i2c_hid' from within the live environment? Which iso did you try exactly, 18.04 or 18.04.5? Can you also check with the latest 'ubuntu-20.04.2.0-desktop-amd64.iso'?
So the working solution pulls in hid_multitouch when inserting i2c_hid, the non-working does not!

The log from Xorg.log when working is:

Hi, it seem that I can't even download a Ubuntu kernel and build it (bionic). It seems that Ubuntu a.o. 'Linux' distro's have gone against the open source spirit, basically are going the Microsoft way.
Do you have access to the Lubuntu machine with kernel code, and can you build kernel's on it?
